Iris Yorke

Rookie - 10 Points (Fort Lauderdale, FL)

Stargazer


Count the scars on my skin
Like the stars in your sky
Wait until my ribs cave in
And watch my eyes when I lie

Do not speak at all
Lay in the dark with me
See burdened demons crawl
Back into a withered sea

Count the bruises on my bones
Stargaze a constellation
And lay on your golden thrones
Until I succumb to temptation

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
